Manchester, NH – The New Hampshire Young Democrats are proud to announce that they have fielded an incredibly strong and deep team of candidates to run for city office in Manchester this fall. This slate of young candidates not only represent a diversity of age, professional experience, and community involvement, but also exemplify the energy of young people across the state who are ready to step up and make a difference in their communities with the support of the Young Democrats. 603 Forward Director Theo Groh released the following statement: "There is no better time to have a record-breaking number of young Democrats filed and ready to run for office. From selectman to alderman, across nearly every ward, new young Democratic candidates will be running to take a leadership role in their communities and add the next generation's voices to Manchester's future.
